XL8 Air Ring Tyer Twist Tie Machine

MSRP: $15,000.00 - $16,000.00

The industrial strength XL8 Air Ring Tyer features a specially designed ring closure system. It can tie products from as small as 1” to as large as 8” in diameter.


The XL8 is 100% air-powered and automatically adjusts to provide a secure tie. Further, the large capacity spool aids in minimizing operator handling and optimizing up-time.


  • Dependable: All-Metal Frame
  • Stable: Heavy-duty Stability Stand included with every machine
  • Versatile: Automatically adjusts to tie products from 1” to 8”

The XL8 Air Ring Tyer comes with an 4″ or 6″ or 8″ ring (depending on model) and includes a heavy-duty rolling stand. This allows for easy placement of the XL8 to ensure maximum workstation continuity. Further, a table can be mounted to the front of the XL8 to alleviate strain on workers from hefty products that need to be raised to the activation target.


  • Industrial Grade: Built to minimize resource consumption & maintenance needs
  • Lean Manufacturing: Self-adjusting with large capacity spool, requiring minimal operator handling
  • Adaptable: Handles a variety of tying sizes at a single station
  • Employee-Friendly: Easy to activate & helps reduce repetitive motion injuries

How It Works:

The Plas-Ties XL8 Air Ring Tyer is an all-pneumatic machine that twist ties products inserted into the ring-shaped tying area. In other words, the adjustable machine can tie almost any product gathered into a round or nearly round shape. Sizes range from a 1-inch diameter up to a maximum of 4, 6 or 8-inch diameter (dependent upon final ring size selection).

Safety First:

Each XL8 has enhanced safety features. These provide maximum control and overall management of the machine. First, the ON/OFF Switch Safety Cover prevents accidental actuation of the unit. Secondly, the Safety Air Regulator on the Ring Cylinder restrains and retracts force applied from the ring. The Shutoff Slide Valve also halts the primary air path to the entire unit for complete maintenance control.

In addition, Plas-Ties recognizes that safety and maximum efficiency are key to any business. Therefore, your staff can take advantage of Factory Training arranged and custom-built for your needs and budget.
